This is summer to me....

I wish I could be a kid again everytime that summer comes around. Here are a few pictures that are the true memory of summer to me.

This is my favorite place~always will be~even though I haven't seen it since the 80's. "The Cabin" holds so many great memories for me. My cousin Angie and I spent hours and hours here and made the best memories. This is the meaning of summer to me. Someday~maybe Angie and I will take a trip to the cabin and see it once again.

This is at my grandparents house in Granville. The 3 muskateers and the neighbor's dog. That is Lisa on the left-she lived down the street and had a really mean little dog. I can remember her mom chasing it with a broom. That's me in the middle and Angie on the end. We were about 8 years old in this picture. That is Tippie the dog. He was the neighbor's dog, but we acted like he was ours.

Here we are in the tree in the backyard at grandpa and grandma's house. We had so much fun in the summers with our grandparents. There was a horse farm behind their house, we loved feeding them through the fence.





Old Pictures

Have you ever looked at old pictures of your family and suddenly you realize that your parents, grandparents, aunts etc. had a life before you? I know that sounds strange, but you only know those people from the point that you were born.

My Great Grandpa Speirs 1954

My Grandma and her siblings 1922


That's my grandma looking down, she is 12 years old in this picture (1921). That is her brother and sister beside her. Her mom is in the back. Check out the fancy clothes.

"Tempted-The Cake" by Asetta Bread Company (Mt. Vernon, OH)







The opening reception for "Tempted" happened Saturday night. It was a lot of fun! My friend Fina and I have been working our butts off to get our art ready for the show. We scheduled it 9 months ago and of course, we both waited till the last minute to get the work done. We had several bumps in the road getting the show ready-but we did it! It is being held at the Knox County Art League (Old B&O Railroad Station) on North Main street in Mt. Vernon, OH. It will be up until June 30th.
